Rotary of Central Point's biggest fundraiser is our annual Pig Pickin' Auction.  Join us for a fun evening of great food, beverages and fellowship at the Padgam Pavillion, Jackson County Expo Park.  The social and silent auction begins at 5:00 pm with dinner and the oral auction to follow at 6:30 pm.  Tickets are $15 per person and available during our regular Wednesday Rotary meeting.  

 

 
 

Central Point Rotary teamed up with the Crater Foundation to supply every kindergarten student in the Central Point School district with a bag of supplies.  Volunteers met on August 6th to organize crayons, glue sticks, pencils and other necessary supplies into  nearly 400 gallon sized zip lock bags, led by Central Point Rotarian, Candy Manary.

 Those supplies were then distributed to Central Point Elementary, Jewett Elementary, Mae Richardson Elementary, Patrick Elementary and Sams Valley Elementary. 

"It means a lot to our most needy students to begin the year with all the supplies they need," said Jewett Principal, Tom Rambo.

 

 
 

Judd Larson, DDS plans to send care packages to our overseas troops--filled with Halloween candy.  As a local dentist, Larson is committed to protecting children from cavities and is willing to demonstrate that commitment by paying a $1 per pound to children willing to give up Halloween treats.  For Rotarians, the candy will be a donation to the project.  Either way, our overseas troops will benefit from a sweet treat that will remind them of home.

Please bring any left-over Halloween candy to Rotary on Wednesday, November 7th.

 

 
 

ImageThe Central Point Rotary is proudly honoring international “Talk Like a Pirate Day” on Wednesday, September 19th.  This meeting is all of the fun of the typical Central Point Rotary, but with salty talk, grog and costumes.  To those of you who are familiar with our Rotary Club, “salty talk” and “costume” may not seem atypical.  And, you may have even questioned whether or not certain members had already been into the “grog.” 

However, September 19th takes this to a whole new level—we’re devoting the entire meeting to pirate-y adventure.  Watch our Cap’n (President Tom) welcome guests and Rotarians aboard as they walk the gangway.  Witness the Master-At-Arms force wenches, Jim-Lads and Salty Sea Dogs to walk the plank or give up their pieces of eight.

All area Rotarians are welcome and encouraged to join the fun.

 

 
 
It's Jackson County Fair Week!  Please note that the Wednesday, July 18th Central Point Rotary meeting will be held at Central Point Elementary School.  Central Point Elementary is located between 4th and Ash Street in Central Point.

This is a great opportunity to enjoy a fine evening with incredible food, wine, beer and good company.  Be sure to pick up your auction tickets at the back table during our Wednesday meetings.
 

 
 
Don't forget to RSVP to Samantha Steele for the Annual Christmas Party, scheduled for Tuesday, December 13th beginning at 5:30 pm (or, whenever you can arrive).  Once again, Brad Reitman's parents have graciously agreed to host in their beautiful home at 4144 Coal Mine Road, Medford.  Spouses are welcome; please bring one $25 gift per couple for the gift exchange.
 

 
 
Central Point Rotary will not meet on Wednesday, December 28, so that members may spend time celebrating Christmas and New Years.  However, please be sure to join us on December 14th for a musical presentation by Crater Choir students.
 

 
 

Central Point Rotarians took 25 Central Point, Gold Hill and Sams Valley kids on a pre-Christmas Shopping Spree to purchase clothes, shoes, pajamas, socks, under ware and warm coats.  Students with the most significant needs were selected by District 6 principals, then paired with a Rotarian to purchase much needed items.   Partners in the shopping spree included RVTD (provided bus transportation from Jewett Elementary to Medford and back), JC Penney (provided haircuts and styles, discount coupons and stockings with gifts for each child, and doughnuts and juice to fuel the shopping), Red Robin (provided a kids' meal for each child) and the Central Point Rotary (provided $150 for each child to make purchases and some amazing entertainment from the Balloon Man).

Central Point Rotarians, student volunteers from Crater and a number of helpful principals used their shopping savvy and the incredible discounts at JC Penney nearly double their purchasing power.  Kids got to choose their favorite warm coats, pick out boots or shoes, or find the perfect party dress.   Candy Manary, who organizes the shopping spree every November, reported that some shoppers got nearly $400 worth of merchandise for their $150 investment.

"Thank you for the sweater," one student wrote in a thank you note, "I wear it every day." 

 
 
 
District Governor Chuck Root is scheduled to visit the Central Point Rotary on Wednesday, September 28, 2011.    Chuck, along with his wife Marti, plan to attend the Central Point Rotary meeting to meet our members, enjoy fellowship, and learn more about the Central Point Rotary.  Prior to visiting our club meeting, Chuck will attend a leadership meeting on the 27th with President Rick and members of the board.  During this leadership meeting, the Governor is interested in learning about Central Point Rotary projects, goals and accomplishments.  
 

 
 
Candy Manary led a team of Central Point Rotarians in purchasing, organizing and handing out over $10,000 in school supplies to Central Point school children.  The school supply support took place on August 16-18 and met the needs of 563 children.  Manary noted that the need for supplies has increased significantly.   In 2010, Rotarians served 391 and in 2009, 213 students were served.  In addition to the support from Central Point Rotary, several other businesses and organizations contributed, including:  Cow Creek Foundation, West Family Foundation, New Car Owners Association, Premier West Bank, State Farm Insurance, and the Crater Foundation.

Restoring vision to hundreds in China
Seeing an elderly Tibetan woman weep with joy when cataract surgery restored her vision after 10 years is the kind of moment Dave Razo will never tire of. For several summers Razo, a member of the Rotary Club of Warner Robins, Georgia, USA, traveled to rural northwest China with a team from Georgia-based nonprofit Gansu Inc., to provide free sight-restoring cataract surgery to some of the country's poorest residents. In 2012, after 22 years and 6,000 successful procedures, Gansu's founder, ophthalmologist William Conrad, retired and discontinued the organization's operations. But Razo didn't...
World Polio Day: Health officials laud polio eradication achievements, point to disease’s endgame

Dynamic young club uses social media to grow
Erin Mills had just finished teaching for the day in Montevideo, Uruguay, when her smartphone buzzed with a message. An impromptu gathering to watch Uruguay's World Cup soccer match was being organized. Through the power of a mobile messaging app, a majority of the Rotary Club of Plaza Matriz had soon assembled at a member's home to munch on baked goods and chips while rooting for their national team. That enthusiasm and ability to draw a crowd has made the club, which just received its charter in July, a success in the country's capital city. Made up almost entirely of young professionals,...

Creating works of art helps refugee children repair their lives
When asked to describe his future, a refugee child from Iraq draws a picture of himself as a doctor. Another child uses colorful paints to depict happy memories of his former life in Iraq. Both children are among the 200,000 displaced Iraqis who now live in Jordan, a country that has become a safe haven for those fleeing oppression and war in neighboring Palestine, Syria, and Iraq. Alexandra Dawley, a former volunteer with the Collateral Repair Project in Jordan, emphasizes how something as simple as an art project can help young refugees adjust to their new lives in a foreign country. With...
